The balance swung in the favor of the Red Army when the reinforcing T-34's showed up behind the advancing Tigers.

I found the scenario's parameters to be incredibly poor.

At the 10 minute mark, 3 T-34 tanks appeared behind two of my tigers and a third moving/hunting into position.

The area where this ambush occurred was to the Germans right, at the top of the hill looking down on the village, on the right side of the woods at that are near the right edge of the game map, and near the road that is located in that area on the German's right.

I had cleared the area and there were two cornered T-34s in a depression. I had also destroyed 6 starting T-34 tanks.

Then on at the 10 minute mark, three Russian T-34s appear in a perfect line and destroy three of My Tiger tanks that were supporting each other. The rear of one tank was totally exposed. The second tank supporting the first tank had a LOS for the area where the T-34s appeared, but was exposed on its side. It never had a chance to take a shot. My third tank had front armor showing to the three t-34 tanks, had a LOS on them and was in move mode. It never got a shot off and was destroyed as well.

Nowhere in the scenario notes did it say that I should expect Russian reinforcements anywhere on the German right.

If find it incredibly bogus that three T-34s could appear out of nowhere to my rear and destroy my Tigers. That area was cleared by my Tigers. In a real combat situation the Tigers would have had a LOS on those tanks well before the T-34s came as close as they did to destroy my Tigers.

In my opinion, this scenario is deeply flawed. Be warned if you are the German player. Three tanks may appear out of nowhere and to your rear on the right.
